To begin viewing a map, simply tap a map in My Maps to open it.  If you do not have a map already imported or downloaded, please see our articles on the Map Store or Importing a Map.
When a map opens, you'll see the map view which consists of several components:

  • Back (returns you to My Maps)

  • Map information (provides descriptive details for the map)
  • Toolbar (provides access to map features and tools)
    1. Compass (allows the user to change the compass mode)
    2. Add a placemark (allows the user to add a placemark to the map)
    3. Coordinates (provides the current location, as well as the option to change the display format when tapped)
    4. Navigation Bar (provides quick access to GPS, Tracking and Navigation tools)
    5. Viewing Map Features (provides a list of all map features on the current map)
    6. Tools (provides additional tools for recording tracks, measuring distances, and more)

The following is a list of supported gestures and what they perform:

  • Single tap and drag: pan the map
